Pizza Hut is getting in on the election action and is offering anyone who gets up on stage during the Town Hall debate on Oct. 16 and asks President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney about their pizza preference will win a lifetime supply of pizza.
Pizza Hut, a subsidiary of Yum Brands, is trying to make pizza a topic during the next presidential debate at Hofstra University. According to an ad by Pizza Hut, the questioner must be an official attendee at the debate, and must also ask either candidate "sausage or pepperoni?" or "pepperoni or sausage?" Either version of the question is apparently acceptable.
"We recognize there are a lot of serious issues to be debated, but we also know a lot less serious - but no less important - ones are being discussed every night inside houses across the country," Pizza Hut executive Kurt Kane said in a statement.
The Democratic and Republican candidates are expected to debate foreign and domestic policy during the 90-minute long town-hall style debate.
President Obama and Mitt Romney face off for the second time on Tuesday at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N,Y.
Pizza Hut has calculated free pizza for life to be worth $15,600 -- and will give a check for that amount to the person asking the right question. The individual is responsible for paying taxes on that amount. A better question for the candidates might be about the appropriate taxes for that amount.
